Starbucks frappuccinos, duckface selfies, regular selfies, selfies with your cat, selfies with your grandma… these are just some of the things that show up on Instagram feeds from all over the world. But Lebanese people have some Instagram habits that take annoying to a whole new level. Check out some of the most common ones below.

1. Hashtags Gone Wrong

#you #dont #need #to #hashtag #every #word #like #this #.

2. The Hipster Post

That’s a great photo of a doorknob in black and white… that’s a great photo of your keys in ‘sutro’…wait, is that mjaddara in ‘sierra’?!

3. #OOTD (Outfit of the Day)

A picture of you leaning against a wall in jeans and a white t-shirt. Ah yes, we see that brand new Chanel bag – congratulations. The most baffling thing about these outfit shots is: WHO IS TAKING THEM?

4. Flowers/Cupcakes With the Caption, “He’s the Best.”

We all know your dad got those.

5. The Happy Prince Burger/St. Elmo’s Cookie

These two items might as well replace hummus and tabbouleh as our national foods. When you’ve seen one, you’ve seen them all. Can we put this post to rest already?

6. Misplaced Meaningful Quotations

The Picture: You at your cousin's wedding.
The Caption: A Martin Luther King quote about education. How are these two related exactly?

7. The Dead Celebrity

It’s amazing how many people become lifelong, hardcore fans minutes after someone dies. Examples include Maya Angelou, Paul Walker, and Philip Seymour Hoffman.

8. The JAMELIKKKK Comment

It’s a picture of your friend’s cat with 3% of her eye showing. What are you complimenting exactly?

9. The Whiny, Egomaniacal Quotation

“The lions don’t lose sleep over the opinion of sheep.”

Okay, first of all, you’re not a lion. Second of all, where are these lions and sheep coexisting? Is there a special breed of sub-Saharan sheep that I haven’t heard about? Please stop.

10. The Nutella Paraphernalia

We all know you eat lettuce for dessert.

11. Selfie Mania

There is a time and a place for a selfie. Pouting your lips at the doctor’s office before you get a mole removed is not one of those times.

12. The Skybar/Iris/White

What’s the point of going to a rooftop bar if you’re going to Instagram nine or 15 pictures of your outfit? There is no point.

13. #NOTD (Nails of the Day)

It’s only a coincidence that you happen to be wearing your Cartier bracelets, right?
